Regular Eye Exams Are The Key to Healthy Eyes
Some eye diseases affect the eyes only e.g. cataract, macular degeneration (AMD) and others are associated with more general systemic conditions e.g. (diabetic eye disease, hypertensive retinopathy, arthritis related conditions).
Some conditions gradually affect the eye and others can have a sudden and severe impact on vision
Unfortunately there are not always obvious signs or symptoms where a sight threatening disease exists and this is where the importance of regular eye checks with your optometrist becomes important.
